When transitioning your skillset from on-premises to a more hybrid cloud environment, you have to also transition your management techniques from GUI and One-Off solutions to a more reproducible Automated environment. Learn the ins and outs of Azure Automation Services and the new Automation Script Gallery. Leverage existing scrips or publish your own for others to use in their environments. Looking to take this to the next level – bring in some new DesiredStateConfiguration skills to standardize, configure and maintain your deployments at scale in the cloud.
Xamarin.Forms abstracts UI definition into cross platform Xaml, with all controls rendered natively across iOS, Android and Windows Phone. In this session you will learn how define a multi-platform UI once for each of these platforms, binding to data stored in a local DB using the Mvvm pattern, and synchronising to the cloud using Azure Mobile Services. Learn when it is necessary to dive into platform specific code and how to go about this in code and in xaml.
